Well, I purchased a '97 supercharged Riviera from a family member and was wondering about mods/tuning. My plan was for a sleeper. No BIG external differances (sound isn't a biggie as long as it doesn't roar). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! usa

Welcome and congrats on the purchase.

What are your goals for 1/4 mile times and how much are you looking to spend?

High ratio rockers , intake and headers should net low 14-high 13 second 1/4 mile times with a decent tune..From there I'd add a gen V blower and norhtstar throttle body , and that should be good towards mid 13s...and still drive almost like stock and be perfectly streetable.

Welcome, Paul (maybe). You're not the same Paul Robinett who makes those silly YouTube videos and operates a candle shop in Columbus, OH are you? Just checking. wink
